Best Cologne for Men: Review of Three Great Fragrances

Posted: August 14, 2014 in Best Cologne for Men

What’s up readers. I did a quick blurb on three of the best cologne for men that I think are ones you should consider testing out. All these brands are pretty damn popular and have a sweet line of other fragrances that you can check out (I’ll mention a few others worth trying from each brand). If you’re new to wearing cologne, please understand that frags smell different from person to person. Testing out on paper strips won’t do much but give you a sense of what the top notes smell like. Always try on fragrances before you buy (if you’re in the position to do so, we all don’t share that convenience). Without further ado, check out these three excellent fragrances.

Yves Saint Laurent Kouros for Men

Yves Saint Laurent Kouros is a popular Aromatic Fougere fragrance made for men. It was created by Yves Saint Laurent and launched in 1981.Since then it has been a popular fragrance globally. It’s masculine, sturdy, strong, powerful, warm, sensual and everything in between. It’s a scent that possesses a blend of spices, floral and wood. It’s actually considered as a fragrance for men who are heroes and possess copious amounts of confidence.

This fragrance comes in several notes that blend perfectly with your natural scent. Its top notes are armetemisa, aldehydes, clary, sage, mace, leaf and coriander. Its base notes are leather, honey, amber, tonka bean, vanilla, oakmoss, civet and musk. It also has heart notes of cinnamon, bergamot, jasmine and geranium.

For the laymen, it is a simple packet of stylishness that could transform an individual into a man that projects influence, might and leverage.

Chanel Platinum Egoïste: Subtle But Not Selfish

Egoïste Platinum by Chanel is a musky and woody fougère cologne for men. It was launched in 1993 and was created by nose Jacques Polge, who has created over thirty fragrances for Chanel. As expected from Chanel, the cologne comes in a classic and elegant bottle. The top notes are lavender, rosemary, neroli and petitgrain. The heart is galbanum, clary sage, jasmine and geranium. The cologne closes with sandalwood, amber, oakmoss, vetiver and cedar.

Egoïste Platinum is a well-crafted blend of bright and light tones, with warm and rich undertones. The scent is subtle and innocuous. Egoiste Platinum can last from eight to ten hours. It leaves a deep, sensual sillage. It is well suited for the sophisticated young man and can be worn at the office or at night. Egoïste Platinum (and it’s sister fragrance, Egoïste) are particularly loved by women. The “Chanel” name carries an aura of prestige which women are sensible to.

Chanel colognes are high-quality products and are well worth their price; however, high-end stores like Neiman Marcus, Saks or Nordstroms sell them at premium price.

If you’re interested in the Chanel line, some other good ones to check out are Allure Homme/Allure Homme Sport/Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme, Pour Monsieur and the highly popular Bleu de Chanel.

I’ll keep on posting about more colognes as well as giving you some tips when it comes to wearing fragrances and which ones work for the best situations. If you can’t try these out in person I’ll also be creating an article on where you can buy some samples for little money. Hopefully you enjoyed this read and I’ll get back to you soon with some more info on some great colognes.
